like anyone else under the law. for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. >> you know, we also use the word ambitious here, and there's no doubt it is ambitious and is it clear at this point exactly, andy, sort of how he's going to prioritize this? does the white house really think that they can make headway on all of these different items that they put forth in the agenda tomorrow? yesterday? >> the inauguration was very much a to-do list for the president and a very progressive, liberal to-do list as we've just explained. at the top of the list, obviously, is resolving the fiscal crises, the brinksmanship that we continue to go through here in washington. but gun control came up in the speech, newtown was referenced, the quiet lanes of newtown were referenced in the speech. that is on the top of the president's agenda as well. and he brought up climate change, this critical environmental issue, several times. especially compared to the one mentioned in his 2009 inauguration. so i think that the fiscal priorities as we

approach to finally in this country have an immigration law that we can live with. >> i'm cautiously optimistic. i see the right spirit. i see things that were once off the table for agreement and discussion being on the table with a serious pathway forward. >> now, the plan will include a path to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants. something many republicans had backed away from until now. >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons. and we've got to understand that. second of all, we can't go on forever with 11 million people living in this country in the shadows. >> i want to bring in "new york times" columnist nick chrisoff and jackie kucinich. is this time different? you were looking at the full screen earlier there. you have a bipartisan group. big hitters in there. schumer, mccain, rubio.menendez. it feels to me as if a month of sundays may have just hit the calendar. the stars are aligning. it does feel different. w

, congressman. we're also seeing the president meeting with sheriffs and law enforcement this morning to push his gun control legislation. have you seen any movement from republicans on that issue? >> i've seen movement, but backwards. you know, we keep on seeing these tragedies and viewing them as teachable moments. and then we very quickly forget the lessons until the next tragedy. we cannot allow this lesson to escape us. it's time for common sense reforms. yesterday i heard general mcchrystal, who i visited in afghanistan, who was the commander of our forces in afghanistan, talk about the fact that, you know, we have troops who handle assault weapons, military weapons. but not without care and training. and we need the same kind of common sense reforms in the united states with respect to limiting magazines and universal background checks. those are good starts and we ought to get that done quickly. >> what do you see happening first? we talked about immigration reform and then we talked about gun control. it will be a very difficult season with all the political capital that may be expen

know, the suicide of her friend and former law partner vince foster who was the white house counsel. big investigation into whether anything nefarious happened there. turned out nothing but his very sad depression. you know, whitewater. lots of other things, you know, just didn't really pan out in a way that stopped her from going on to be elected. twice as a u.s. senator from new york and from a -- nearly getting the democratic nomination in 2008 and being secretary of state. so my point in the piece in the national journal was if you keep crying wolf essentially about someone, it's very hard for the, you know, 39th time you do it for it to stick. >> not only that but she's obviously gotten very practiced at how to deal with these kinds of situations. although she did become emotional when talking about those killed in the benghazi consulate, including ambassador stevens. let me play that. >> for me, this is not just a matter of policy. it's personal. i stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at andrews. i put my arms around the
